After the success of last year’s Hackathon, Ministry of Data (MoD) is back, presenting AgHack. Running over one intense weekend between the 27th and 29th July 2018, Aghack aims to solve pre-validated agricultural problems sourced from the Government of Western Australia -  Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD). 

MoD is calling all innovators, developers, data gurus, designers, and start ups to tackle these problems using technology in new and exciting ways. 

The problems you can tackle this year are problems that DPIRD need solved now, and they are not isolated! These issues are faced by governments and enterprises all over the world.

Unlike most hackathons, the solutions designed at MoD hackathons don’t finish at the event’s end. They are committed to assisting teams commercialise their solutions post-hackathon with the help of their impressive network, mentors and partnerships.
